It is an inherent gift to be able to take visions, dreams, or ideas and bring them to fruition. It is no wonder that Shondra possesses this divine gift. What better way to share this gift with others than designing, planning and producing some of the most memorable moments in her client’s life?
Shondra is a Premier Lifestyle Manager, Immersive Event Designer, Luxury Travel Consultant and Innovative Experience Producer, catering to global clientele. She provides lifestyle management, event design, event decorating, floral design and travel planning & booking services.
Shondra has a Bachelors of Science in Marketing from South Carolina State University. Her focus in marketing, branding and events actually began in high school. In 2005 she started an artist management and booking company based on her experience managing all live events for her university’s student body. Thinking that producing live events and writing music was her calling, she focused on that while maintaining her professional marketing career. In 2009, Shondra noticed that her focus started to shift into the creative aspect of events. She became more interested in interactive branding events, known as experiential marketing events, private events, weddings and event design. In 2010, her contract position for a major technology company ended and she decided it was time to take a leap of faith. She focused all her energy working in the event industry – event planning, event production, event design, floral design and travel planning. It has been the best decision she ever made.
